On the 30th of July, Boycott Nellie's protesters showed up for the 7th week since Keisha was dragged down the stairs over Pride weekend. The bar was open but sparsely attended. During the protest, snowplows summoned by MPD tried to clear the intersection, one of them coming in straignt-on and honking while others flanked. The plows were halted by advancing protesters and the attack failed.
Snowplows are commonly used to keep car ramming attacks out of major public events, but it was generally suspected the reason for eventually deploying the plows to this formation was not to defend the protest, but rather to defend Nellies. The previous week, dirt bikers and ATV riders joined the protest near the end, creating a noisy, smoky scene reminescent of Mad Max. While this was to cheering protesters, Nellie's owner Doug may have been thinking more of facing Black Lives Matter in Thunderdome on seeing such a thing.
